Rube Goldberg was a Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist best known for his zany invention cartoons. A Rube Goldberg Machine (RGM) is a crazy contraption which accomplishes a simple task in the most complicated – and funniest – way possible! Students are challenged to solve a simple task by designing, constructing, testing and improving a Rube Goldberg Machine that accomplishes the task. Students will enter their machine in the national Rube Goldberg Machine Contest
Students from any school are welcome to join.
